You are apparently looking for fLinearizedLinearized
f = Log[Coth[1/2 ArcCosh[Sqrt[1 + x^2]/x]]];
fLinearized =
FullSimplify[Normal[Series[f, {x, 0, 1}]]]
Log[-((2 + x)/(-2 + x))]
fLinearizedLinearized =
Normal[Series[fLinearized, {x, 0, 1}]]
x
Plot[Evaluate[Tooltip /@
{f, fLinearized, fLinearizedLinearized}],
{x, -1, 1}]

I was using Series to linearize a function at x=0 but I run into a problem with the specific function below:
f = Log[Coth[1/2 ArcCosh[Sqrt[1 + x^2]/x]]];
fLinearized = Simplify[Normal[Series[f, {x, 0, 1}]]]
Plot[{f, fLinearized, x}, {x, -10, 10}]
Mathematica produces output without complaining but the result does not contain an explicit linear term. Specifically, fLinearized is not a linear function of x, though it does seem to have the same derivative at x=0 as the original function f. The correct answer should be f=x +O[x^2].
